TMZ reported on Tuesday that The Weeknd and Daft Punk are being sued over their 2016 collaborative hit track "Starboy". The track peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and sold six million copies in the United States alone. The lawsuit claims the artists stole from her song "Hooyo", which she co-wrote and sang and released in 2009.

According to a report inTMZ, blog posts have been written describing the similarities between the songs, including thousands of comments on said posts agreeing with Yasminah's claim that both songs share similar hooks, the same key, and tempo. Yasminah worked with two producers on "Hooyo", who previously threatened lawsuits for "Starboy" that settled out of court.

She's filed a $5 million dollar plagiarism lawsuit now, and is going after The Weeknd, Daft Punk and Republic Records for their involvement in the production of "Starboy". Yasminah says the problem is, she never got a cut of those settlements.
